TMS207 ~ Happy 40th Anniversary ~

Good morning!  So glad you could stop by and visit for a bit!  Today I have a project based on a sketch found at Tuesday Morning Sketches. 
I needed a 40th anniversary card and while doing color research, found out ruby red is the traditional color for your 40th!  Who knew?  So with a sketch and a color scheme in mind, I went to work. 

I created a ruby red card stock base with a layer of white and a die cut red decorative layer.  I stamped my image in black and colored each heart with my trusty Copics.  I added a bit of glitter glue to each heart for shine.  After cutting out my image, I matted it with red CS also and added it to my card base.  You know how I love flowers, right?  Well...  I had to add a few on the bottom corner!  ;-)  A few die cut and paper punched sprigs with lush roses fit the bill. 
I didn't stop there!  I used a couple of Our Daily Bread Designs recent stamp releases to embellish the inside along with a couple of darling die cut birds.  I can't wait to present this to the lovely couple!  I hope you like it and as always thanks for stopping by!
